The State of Idaho and now the nation are feeling heavy hearts this week as investigators say they believe they have credible information on the long-standing Michael Vaughan case in Fruitland, Idaho. For multiple days now, both Fruitland Police and Idaho State Police departments have been digging in the backyard of a Fruitland, Idaho home where they believe remains may be found--police dogs have also consistently been on the site.

Earlier this year, we highlighted some of the key events of this missing child case, early on--which has now been ongoing for over a year. 

Timeline: Missing Idaho Child Michael Vaughan

Since late July of 2021, 5-year-old Michael Vaughan has been missing from his home and family in Fruitland, Idaho. The heart-shattering story has made it's way into the homes of families nationwide and several police organizations along side thousands of volunteers continue to keep the search alive. Below is a timeline of events leading up to where we are, now.

News outlets are reporting this afternoon that authorities are now saying a search of the inside of the home may also be necessary--and this could continue for another week. 

While law enforcement officers and investigators continue to search, one arrest has been made: a resident of the home, 35-year-old Sarah Wondra. The Fruitland woman was arrested for failing to report a death to the coroner. Bond for Wondra has been set at $500,000 and the judge has ordered a competency evaluation & mental health exam for her.

While searching for more information on Wondra, links to her TikTok appeared--and now, the internet is a little shocked.  While it's important to note that until proven guilty, Wondra is indeed innocent--her TikTok account, which is primarily composed of religious commentary, contains a video being filmed in front of a missing child poster--Michael Vaughan's.

It's a little eerie.

The highlighted video posted by suspect Sarah Wondra has nothing to do with the missing child, Michael Vaughn, but rather her health. The video is, however, embedded below:
